A diorama museum on Chudskoye Lake, Pskov Region, Russia, participates in the competition in the category “Best Architectural Design for a Museum”.
The Battle on the Ice was fought between the Republic of Novgorod and the forces of the Livonian Order and Bishopric of Dorpat on April 5, 1242, at Lake Peipus (Russian: Chudskoye Lake). The battle is notable for having been fought largely on the frozen lake, which gave the battle its name.
The mission of the architectural project, located at Chudskoye Lake, was to establish a museum complex addressing the great battle. This place is not to become a place of attraction for scientists and experts, but also a landmark for the wide audience and the youth, further evolving into an international cultural center.
The style applied can be characterized as the Conceptual Symbolism. A rather simple architectural volume – a prism with edges of 30 meters horizontally and of 9 – vertically, is divided into recognizable squares of 3 by 3 meters. In general, the structure stands over a grid of 3 by 3 meters, too, and this is not a coincidence, as in Rus the number of 3 was believed to be embodiment of spirit.
